Kinderkamack Roadway & Intersection Improvements


Project Information

  • Location: Emerson, New Jersey

  • Client: Borough of Emerson

  • Disciplines: Design/Construction Oversight

The $4.4 Million Kinderkamack Road Improvement Project involved roadway widening and realignment, two (2) new railroad crossings, new drainage systems, intersection improvements, signalization upgrades, curbs, sidewalks, ADA compliant curb ramps and streetscape amenities. This project was the culmination of a considerable effort associated with the studies, planning, design, public outreach, and oversight during construction, as well as extensive interaction with the New Jersey Department of Transportation and NJ Transit.

The project maximized the roadway’s curb-to-curb pavement width and realignment within the building structures lining both sides of the Borough’s central business district. These improvements were necessitated in order to enhance the safety of pedestrians, commuters and the traveling public through this heavily traveled corridor.

The three (3) new computerized traffic signals are traffic responsive to motorists, pedestrians and approaching trains. There state-of-the-art safety features include: camera detection to alert the signal equipment of the presence of vehicles queuing up on the side streets; audible, countdown, pedestrian actuated push buttons to provide pedestrians sufficient crossing time; and, technologically advanced railroad crossing circuitry to alert pedestrians and motorists of approaching trains.

In addition to the aforementioned roadway and safety improvements, a new storm sewer system was constructed, increasing the pipe size of the main to a 42-inch capacity and the upsizing and replacing of other drainage pipes.
